This article is about inventory items. For the entity, see Item (entity). For the items that mobs leave behind on death, see Drops. For the command, see Commands/item.

The Creative inventory is filled with a wide variety of items.

An item is an object that exists only within the player's inventory and hands, or displayed in item frames or armor stands.


Some items, when used, place a block or entity version of themselves into the game world. Put simply, they are an item when in the inventory, and a block when placed. For example, boats turn into an entity when placed, and beds turn into a group of blocks when placed. When selected in the hotbar, items briefly display their names above the HUD.

The only method by which an item can be properly displayed within the game environment is to place it into an item frame.

If an item that does not become a block is dropped, it becomes an entity represented by a sprite that floats above the ground for 5 minutes in a loaded chunk before despawning, unless the player walks over it to pick it up before it despawns, it is picked up by a mob, hopper or minecart with hopper, or it is destroyed by fire, lava, cactus, or explosions.

An item underwater floats up toward the surface. If the surface water is flowing, the item is pushed along with the flow.

Items that are placed on top of a hopper are drawn into the hopper.

Most items stack to 64, but some only stack to 16 and others not at all.

List of items

Items that create blocks, fluids or entities

Items with use in the world

These items, when highlighted in a player's hotbar (a.k.a "held"), held in the off hand, or equipped in an armor slot, can be used by either attack or use, or can serve a specific purpose (for example, offer the player advantage or disadvantage). Some can be used whenever, others only when aiming at specific blocks or entities.

Items with indirect use in the world

The player cannot interact with or directly use these items; however, they are used for trading, brewing, enchanting, or crafting ingredients for other items that do have direct uses. The exception is clocks, which are not used in any recipes but serve an informative function.

Spawn eggs

Education Edition only

These items can be accessed only in Education Edition. The spawn agent, portfolio, and camera are obtainable through Creative mode and the /give command. The Garbage item is only obtainable through unknown Lab Table recipes or via inventory editing.

Unimplemented items

Some items are unimplemented, or have been mentioned to be implemented in the future.

Removed items

Removed items no longer exist in current versions of the game.

Joke items

Joke items are only present in April Fools versions of the game.
